Have you ever dreamt of traipsing around in a garden filled with fluttering butterflies? At the Na Thian Butterfly Garden in Koh Samui this dream becomes a magical reality.
This amazing tropical garden is home to a multitude of colorful butterflies, moth, and other insects. It sets the scene for humans to revel in nature’s beauty, at one with some of the world’s most serene wildlife. Thousands visit Na Thian Butterfly Garden for this fairytale experience.
An unobtrusive net covers the garden at a height which allows the winged creatures to soar freely from flower to flower, without leaving the garden.
You’ll be able to walk in the colourful flowered garden, along a pathway which follows the crystal clear stream flowing along the mountainside, all the way to the bottom of the garden. No doubt as your walk your eyes will be trained to bright flowers and lush green fauna, for a glimpse of butterflies getting their fill of sweet nectar.
It’s not unlikely for a butterfly to perch itself on your head, shoulders or hands so you’ll want to have your cameras ready for the chance to capture this fascinating moment.
As you near the top of the garden you’ll see a quaint bee-house which looks down at the rest of the grounds, as well as a man-made waterfall. Before you leave the garden you’ll be have the chance to purchase honey made by the very bees you saw in the bee-house.
The insect museum is stationed further down from the bee-house, at the very top of the garden. Within the museum you’ll see some of Thailand’s and Asia’s common and rare insect species; spiders, stick insects, scorpions and grasshoppers to name a few. Another amazing attraction of the Na Thian Butterfly Garden is caterpillar and cocoon display.
While your journey in the butterfly garden is an unguided one, if you happen along any of the nature-loving keepers, they’ll be delighted to answer any questions you may have and share some tidbits about some of the species inhabiting the garden.
Beyond marveling at the wildlife you’ll come across in the garden, you will also be awestruck by the natural scenic beauty of the garden. There are several stunning view points of the ocean from the garden.
Na Thian Butterfly Garden provides an amazing way to get your young ones enamored with nature’s wildlife and excited about learning everything they can about the creatures they’ll see here. What’s also great is the fact that the butter garden is located very close to Samui Tiger Zoo & Aquarium. So if you’ve got the entire day to spare, you could make it full-fledged wildlife day visiting both the garden and the zoo/aquarium.
